Today, the 8th of October 2015, Rwanda’s Supreme Court, chaired by the Chief Justice, Prof.Sam RUGEGE, ruled in favour of changing the constitution in the case submitted by the Democratic Green Party of Rwanda, vs the Government of Rwanda, regarding the non-lifting of Presidential Term Limits from the Constitution.
According to Article 98 of the Rwandan Constitution, the President of the Republic is the Guardian of the Constitution and guarantor of national unity.
The Democratic Green Party of Rwanda, will therefore, appeal to the President of the Republic to ensure the non-lifting of Presidential Term limits in the constitution.
The Democratic Green Party of Rwanda will also conduct a No Change campaign nationwide, sensitising Rwandans not to vote for the change of the constitution, in case of a national referendum.
The Party will also explore other legal procedures like filing a case in the African Court on Human and Peoples Rights as well as the East African Court of Justice.
